The subtle trick Showtime's "Penny Dreadful is that it is far less about the blood, gore and the specter of gruesome death than the sharp pain and exhilarating pleasure of living, and the terror of feeling alone even in close company. Read our review in the May Picks section.

Barbara Carey flies to Italy to visit her blind sister Mary Ann, who is studying in a music academy. Once in Rome Barbara discovers her sister has disappeared and, according to the Italian police, she may have been murdered by a maniac who is obsessed with young sightless women. With the help of Martin Foster, from the British Embassy, Barbara starts trying to find out what happened to Mary Ann. She even pretends to be blind herself in an attempt to attract the killer, and finally the clues lead her to Seagull Island, privately owned by a mysterious British citizen named David Malcolm. Barbara must then find the answers to several questions: was Mary Ann really kidnapped? What happened to David's wife and son in the island? And why is David's relative Carol so unhappy to see a woman with him? Written by
This one has a promising video cover and an intriguing title ("The Secret Of The Seagull Island"), but don't be fooled (like I was). Its TV-movie feel is strong but could be forgiven if it achieved its goals in the other departments. But the "secrets" are unsensational, the plot is illogical and the pacing is plodding. The only two reasons that would make me give it one star instead of none are the well-shot underwater scenes and the not-bad acting. But it's still a waste of time.
